‘DQ Him’: Twitter Reacts as Jon Rahm Almost Takes Out Woman With His Outburst

It is not a secret that golfers often lose control over their emotions after hitting a bad shot. Throwing or breaking their clubs to using expletives are some of the ways they usually use to show off their rage. World No. 2 Jon Rahm had a similar experience; however, his rage could have hurt someone this time!

“Oh my god, an amazing line there, Jon!” Rahm sounded displeased with his approach shot on par-5 of the 11th at the Memorial Tournament. As many have done in the past, the Spanish golfer threw away his wedge in rage.

Although the golfer didn’t intend to, the club nearly hit the woman holding the microphone.

Rahm could be seen apologizing to the woman even before the club fell on her. Since it didn’t hit her, the woman also sounded nonchalant as she laughed it off with an “It’s alright.”

Notably, this isn’t the first time the golfer has shown his rage during a tournament. “Truthfully, I have been doing a lot of work when it comes to, you know, how I express my passion,” Rahm has said about his rage. He had acknowledged his emotional swing in an interview with ‘ThePostGame.’

How did the golf fans react to the incident?

It was not the first time the golfer had shown his rage on the course.

Many thought at least a fee should be remitted from the golfer for his actions.

However, some justified his actions as it didn’t hit the woman, and she sounded okay after the incident.

Most golf fans thought Rahm should get a penalty for throwing his club at a person. Meanwhile, some thought it shouldn’t be news considering the club didn’t even hit the woman.
